Enertec Marine Systems is offering electrical inspections from basic electrical safety checks to detailed system-performance evaluation of batteries, charging systems, generators and inverters and chargers. Compliance with relevant electrical standards is also assessed. Should the intention be long coastal or offshore cruising or racing, advice can be given on any possible upgrades. Enertec technicians are fully registered and have many years of practical boating experience, ensuring customers are given comprehensive and relevant advice. Enertec Marine Systems 09 414 4730 www.enertecmarinesystems.com Bavaria makes affordable boating Easy USING EXACTLY THE same Farr-designed hull as the popular Cruiser 33, the Bavaria Easy 9.7 is a pared-down version, intended as an entry-level yacht. The Easy 9.7 concentrates only upon the essentials. With an open stern, spacious cockpit and tidy deck layout, she is simple for single or double-handed crews. Internally she is also fairly stripped out, with the base boat not including a stove, fridge, doors or shower. These can be added at the factory when the boat is delivered. If, however, you are looking for an affordable brand-new yacht, then this is for you as it brings the standard Bavaria quality, finish and warranty at a start price of $159,454 including GST. Busfield Marine 09 302 1220 email@example.com Indio on ICE THE WALLY 100 Indio is one of the top racing superyachts in the world and, despite having no shortage of comfort, is capable of speeds well into the 20-knot range. She has recently been fitted out with a new set of ICE Stratis sails from Doyle Sails, whose new product is making a big impact in the world of grand-prix and superyacht racing. As a super-light but strong fibre, ICE allows Doyle to make sails significantly lighter, which on big boats adds up to dramatic savings in weight, boosting performance. Doyle Sails 09 820 9140 www.doylesails.co.nz SEAKEEPERS GYRO-STABILISERS have been added as a standard item on MJM Yachts’ new 50z. Seakeeper sales manager Brook Stevens says, “Becoming a blueprint item for such a fine vessel is yet another first for Seakeeper, and MJM Yachts has set the bar for the industry.” Aboard the 50z, the quiet, compact and efficient Seakeeper unit fits neatly in the utility room, forward of an optional side-by-side Miele washer and dryer. The drawback of all powerboats is that they don’t stay level because they all roll, no matter how stable otherwise. A Seakeeper- equipped MJM 50z captures all benefits of power and sail. It doesn’t heel and it doesn’t roll.
